Since I’m currently living in Qatar, I was interested to read this critique of Wolff Olins branding for the recently opened Arab Museum of Modern Art in Doha on Under Consideration’s ‘Brand New’ channel
Its (Mathaf’s) identity is almost wholly expressed through typography, and attention has clearly been lavished in this area. As someone with little to no expertise in Arabic typography, I’ll refrain from making too many comments on that aspect, other than to say this is probably one of the more pleasing English / Arabic double version logo I have seen to date.
